Playgrounds Open in Elk River

Playground Open In accordance with Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-56, playgrounds in the City of Elk River have reopened to the public. The order encourages public outdoor recreational facilities to open for families and children as long as those using them follow the outdoor recreation guidelines including:

  • Practice social distancing of at least six feet between you and anyone outside of your immediate household.
  • Refrain from group play involving more than 10 people.
  • Assume park amenities like play structures, benches, picnic tables, water fountains, etc. have not been sanitized. Wash hands or use sanitizer immediately after use.
Although never closed, the beach at Orono Park is also open for use. Please be sure to use the same social distancing and sanitizing precautions when patronizing the beach area.

Park Info

18599 Gary Street - Home to a new destination playground, Orono Park is a family friendly 28-acre park located on the west shore of Lake Orono south of Highway 10.

The park is the hub of many civic amenities, including the City Hall Campus, the Library, the YMCA and the Sherburne County Fairgrounds.

City Council approved the updated Orono Park Master Plan on July 17, 2017. The revised park master plan recommended from the Parks and Recreation Commission highlights the park with reconfigured parking lots, expanded beach area, open recreation lawn, Kayak/SUP rental facility, larger splash pad, lighted pickleball and basketball courts and a fitness area. Staff will review the park features in the plan to develop an overall park capital improvement plan.  View plan.


The Orono Park playground is featured in the Landscape Structures "Playground Inspirations" catalog.  The catalog is distributed worldwide and over 100,000 are printed.  See it here.
